Dave Ruel and Billy Blau Thought Leader Interview: eDiscovery Trends

Time for another thought leader interview on eDiscovery Today! This time, I’m interviewing Dave Ruel of Hanzo and Billy Blau of Asana!

Dave is the VP of Product at Hanzo and Billy is the Head of Business and Corporate Development at Asana. Last week, Hanzo announced that it has joined Asana Partners as a Technology Partner, bringing enterprise-grade eDiscovery, investigations, and compliance solutions to the Asana application.

Many of my thought leader interviews in the past have been published in print form, but Dave and Billy agreed to conduct and publish this one as a video interview! Dave, Billy and I discussed that announcement, as well as trends in collaboration, eDiscovery of collaboration data, enterprise solutions in the cloud and more. Specific topics included:

  • Why Hanzo and Asana entered into the partnership and what they think it will mean to their customers.
  • How Asana has addressed the need within organizations for project management to be more collaborative and visually intuitive than ever.
  • Why eDiscovery professionals need to be focusing on discoverable data from platforms like Asana in addition to more talked about platforms like Slack, Teams and Zoom.
  • What the goals of the Asana partnership program are and Asana was looking for in an eDiscovery partner that Hanzo was able to provide.
  • The importance to be able to access data from various collaboration solutions within a single platform.
  • The importance of enterprise partnerships to help organizations maximize the benefits of their enterprise cloud solutions.
